When 15-year-old twins Malcolm and Valentine Gilbert moved to a new town, they never imagined that the old house across the street could bring them so much trouble. Inside the old house, a secret machine with the power to pierce time has reawakened. Meanwhile, lightning storms are breaking out all over town. They're getting worse every week, and seem to enjoy striking kids who just want to pass science class and mind their own business. When Malcolm and Valentine discover a connection between the house and the storms, their situation goes from mysterious to crazy-stupid dangerous. Someone is controlling the great machine, and their purpose is nearly complete. In a race against time, the twins must uncover the chilling plan, the mastermind behind it, and the force that's driving the deadly storms. They'll hunt a powerful enemy that threatens their town's existence, and the only clues are written in the sky.

About the Author:

Ryan Dalton is a freelance writer and a writer for the board game Exile Sun. He lives in Phoenix, Arizona.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6–10—Twins Valentine and Malcolm moved to their grandmother's town, Emmett's Bluff, with their father after losing their mother to cancer. Both freshmen are understandably withdrawn but are doing far better than their author father, who stays mostly secluded. Mal is fascinated by a mysterious house across the street with no doors, and the town seems rife with strangeness: disappearances, deaths, and unexplained lightning storms that come and go unpredictably. When Mal investigates the strange house, he is attacked and threatened by a shadowed man and then finds a strange pocket watch on the ground. The tension escalates when the twins and some new friends go for a hike and end up injured in a surprise lightning storm. Val finds the pocket watch in Mal's room and discovers its time-traveling capabilities. But the mysterious man's identity and mission send the group (with some new allies) into a confrontation with extremely powerful forces. The action (and writing) seems slow to start, including characterizations. By the end of the novel, however, Dalton has found his stride, characters are fully realized, and the conclusion will leave readers wanting more. This is the first in a planned trilogy. VERDICT Sci-fi fans will gobble this one up and be waiting impatiently for the next.—Kelly Jo Lasher, Middle Township High School, Cape May Court House, NJ
